    Trying to create a calculator

    Asked by john krisch  on January 06, 2016 at 01:30 PM

    I am trying to create a calculation form that would allow the user to calculate costs based upon weight and destination.




    Destination Selection: Belgium $2.25 per pound


    User selects destination Belgium $2.25 per pound

    User enter weight 50 lbs

    Calculator provides user with rate estimate of $112.50


    Is there a calculator widget that can do this available already or do I need to look elsewhere?


    thank you

    You are able to create a form for your calculation. You can add a drop down with a value for each selection.


    Once you have added the text box so users can select the weight, you can add the FORM CALCULATION widget. This will enable you to create a formula to get the total.

    I have created a small sample for you to review and clone if you like.


    Please let us know if this helps.
